that would apply for the one set on wednesday. >> understate law the department of crepes said it would use a three-drug procedure in regulations they spent years creating. those regulations have force of law and so judge fogel is saying you can either have your rights unthe constitution protected and understate law protected but not both. it's completely unfair. >> reporter: the same judge, judge jeremy fogel, was the one who halted executions in california in 2006. it claimed procedures for the three drug cocktail aimed at killing the condemned was not clear, and the death chamber was too dimly lit to monitor the procedure. but the judge is now allowing the executions to proceed because of a supreme court ruling in 2008 which upheld lethal injections in the state of kentucky and because ohio and washington state have been using 1-drug executions for the past year with no reported problems. that even as fogel presides over a lawsuit challenging the same procedure. brown has filed an appeal with the ninth circuit court. what they plan to do if all stays of execution fail. craig devro, san q
the damage around it, the location of the fatalities, all of those things so the information will help us determine the cause of it but most of the work on that site has now been completed so we're shifting to sort of the next phase which includes looking at documents. we're getting a good flow of documents from pg&e. we've given them an extensive list of documents we want to see. we're getting a good flow of documents from them. we'll be starting to visit the sites that control -- the control and monitoring sites at the milpitas and martin end that control and monitor the flow of gas through the pipes. so we'll start that visit. we'll start the visits to the two valves. the valves have been tagged which means to preserve the evidence. we've asked that the valves not be moved until we have an opportunity to examine them in detail. so we'll start that aspect of the investigation. we'll be looking at the seismic records to see if there could have been some seismic activity that re-- related to the breach of the pipe. we've started to receive some of the tests for some of the pg&e employee,
federal investigators this morning and joins you now -- and joins us now with this live report. >> reporter: good morning, tori. yes, it's been almost a week since this fireball and explosion and fire here in san bruno. there are still so many questions. the ntsb is out here this morning. we're getting more information about where this investigation is headed. key among the question is how did this start, obviously and why did it burn so long? let's talk about the cause. the ntsb has been asking for anyone to come forward if they smelled gas in the days leading up to the explosion. there have been about 90 e- mails sent to the ntsb. but the ntsb said they only had one person who smelled gas and that was two or three weeks before this happened. if they didn't smell gas, that would be a clue. >> if people smell gas in advance, that suggests a failure, where gas is coming out and people smell it. that's a different kind of failure than a catastrophic failure. that would help us determine the cause of this explosion. that's why that's so crucial to us. >> reporter: there's also the
happened in walnut creek. a man in an suv approached a 13- year-old boy and tried to use a common ruse. >> the juvenile didn't know who he was but he said he was supposed to pick him up. that was a clue to the young man because he just walked off and the man drove off. >>> the suspect is a thin hispanic man in his 50s. police are looking for a white man with a heavy accident. in walnut creek the man is a heavy set man in his 40s or 50s. live in brentwood, i'm john sasaki. >>> to the peninsula where that devastated neighborhood in san bruno is beginning to undergo dramatic changes. exactly two weeks after a natural pipeline explosion destroyed dozens of homes. today's crews using heavy machinery are starting to clean up before the rebuilding begins. >> reporter: progress is starting in small steps. this is one of the homes where crews began today removing large materials and started scraping the soil. all day excavators scooped up blackened and burned debris of what was once someone's home. >> they picked up my rv and threw it in the garbage. there wasn't much to throw away. >> reporter

injection to the state's former practices. the availability of the drug used had to be considered. the maker of the drug has said another dose of this drug may not be available until january of 2011. the execution would be the first in nearly five years and would be the last until next year. executions have been hold on 2006, when the federal judge in san jose found the lethal injection procedures were flawed which posts a risks of causing extreme pain in violation of the ban on cruel and unusual punishment. the courts are not the last line of defense when it comes to halting executions. governor schwarzenegger could step in. legal experts say although he's pro-death penalty, every case is different. >> governors have all of the facts in front of them and they know they are the last line of defense. and so there are a lot of -- there are a lot of governors that really, really take this seriously. >> reporter: the man skimmed to be executed is albert greenwood brown convicted of raping and murdering a 15-year-old riverside girl 30 years ago. 50 people have already been in- - have already been
